Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys | What You Need to Know
- September 29, 2020 - Catastrophic Injury,
We all know that experience is a great teacher. And, there are many experiences that we’d rather avoid. One of these is traumatic brain injury or TBI.
TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury. Falls are the leading cause of TBI and are the leading cause of death for persons 65 years of age or older. Overall, motor vehicle-traffic injury is the leading cause of TBI-related deaths. It’s estimated that 50,000 people in the United States die from TBI each year. I understand TBI for several reasons.
I’ve represented people with TBI injuries for a long time. I personally had a brain tumor and brain surgery over 20 years ago. I know what it feels like to have symptoms stemming from brain trauma. And, I’m very involved in representing and protecting elders and their families from abusers.
I’ve written two books on how predators prey on vulnerable elders. And, how to combat it.
I’ve seen firsthand how clients with TBI suffer its effects. Trauma to an elderly person’s brain can accelerate pre-existing dementia. TBI associated with dementia has been linked to depression, panic attacks, anxiety and aggressive behavior. Physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive changes are common.
